Bob ML Tressler recently picked up his 1.5 Steel--6.5 x 14 from Drum Center Of Portsmouth. Have had a lot of great discussions with Bob in recent month's, and was really looking forward to his take on the drum. He really, really knows exactly what he wants from a drum, and that is always very welcome here. Matching players up with what they want, a specific size, type of head, etc.., has always been the #1 priority here.
He was introduced to the drum by Keith Zebroski at a Miranda Lambert show, and contacted me after that show. Bob was Keith's instructor in the early years, and they have stayed in touch. Keith had that same size of drum on tour. It was used on the later part of Kenny Chesney's Spread The Love Tour, Miranda Lambert's Keeper Of The Flame Tour, and part of the Highway Vagabond Tour.
Bob is incredibly active with his band: The New Whiskey River Band. They are continually playing live in a variety of settings and for different events. He also is laying tracks for upcoming Country artist Bentley Lewis. Live, and with the tracks for Bentley, he is using his 1.5 Steel--6.5 x 14. Those will be done this Fall, and of course will update the Latest News on these.
Thanks Again for everything Bob. Thanks as well to Tony Interlande of Drum Center Of Portsmouth. You are always unbelievably helpful, and Bob could not have been happier with your service, and with this drum.
